FGV forms partnership with Naval War College to train officers in strategic management

On March 5, FGV and the Brazilian Naval War College held a ceremony to formally launch a partnership aimed at training Brazilian Navy officers in strategic management. The ceremony took place in the Noble Room in FGV’s presidential office and was attended by the director of the Naval War College, Rear Admiral Garriga, and the president of FGV, Professor Carlos Ivan Simonsen Leal.

The Naval War College delegation included its educationsuperintendent, Rear Admiral Wieland; its deputy director, Commander Ribeiro; and the head of its Maritime Policy and Strategy Course, Commander Sousa.

FGV was represented by former Navycommander, Admiral Ilques Barbosa; Professor Irapoan Cavalcanti; and its information technology director, Rear Admiral Luciana Marroni.

The Strategic Management Extension Course will form part of the curriculum of the Naval War College’s Maritime Policy and Strategy Course – the highest-level course in the Navy and a requirement for promotion to the rank of rear admiral.

Aimed at merit-selected sea and war captains, the Maritime Policy and Strategy Course is designed to enable its student-officers to properly analyze the Navy’s present arrangements and future needs in order to comply with Brazil’s National Defense Policy. Accordingly, during the course, the students analyze the international and domestic situation, come up with a strategic naval plan and identify the capabilities that the Navy must possess in order to meet its defense objectives.

Thus, the partnership between FGV and the Naval War College contributes directly to the continual preparation and qualification of the Brazilian Navy’s human capital, in line with the guidelines established by the National Defense Policy in view of the pressing challenges of national defense and the operational needs of the Armed Forces.

This initiative strengthens FGV’s position as an accredited Strategic Defense Company, as part of its work to promote production, teaching, applied research and technical activities aimed at national security, which has so far resulted in the academic and professional training of more than 6,300 Armed Forces officers, 200 of whom went on to become generals.
